insurance. he said there still listening to other options. i want to bring in bret bair. this has caused a firestorm of controversy. this poll shows 59% of americans do not want the democrats to go it alone. there are reports that they may want to go it alone. robert gibbs is going to great lengths to knock this down. >> this is all about the public and private discussions to try to shore up the base for the administration. at the town hall meeting in colorado, the president, and then kathleen sebelius, suggested that the administration might be willing to go forward with an idea that does not include the public option. by the way, that is government run health insurance. that is the plan that is included on the table. if they were going to abandon that. that sent off a firestorm of reaction from the left. now we have a lead in "the new york times" -- senior officials say they might go alonone. it is conservative democrats in the house and senate that have a real problem with the public option. in this briefing, the white house robert gibbs is trying to back away from "the new york times

to washington. i'm chris wallace in for bret baier. the obama administration's cash for clunkers program is looking for a $2 billion refill. the senate is expected to vote before it goes on august recess whether to approve more money for rebates that have encouraged tens of thousands of people to trade in their own gas guzzlers for new more fuel efficient cars. white house correspondent wendell goler is live with an update. good evening, wendell. >> chris, this legislation passed by a 3-1 margin in the house an harry reid is confident he has the votes to pass it in the senate but lawmakers are spending hours debating amendments they know will be rejected just to get their objections on the record before they go home for the august break. as of yesterday, the clunkers program had burned through three-quarters of the billion dollars congress initially appropriated, suggesting the original $4 billion authorization the house wanted was a closer estimate of the program's appeal and its cost. gp was the big winner with 17.8 p% of the cash for clunkers car sales. >> it has been a madhouse, peop
